The Other Jimmy Stewart Christmas Movie

8 years, 9 months ago at Oct 11 23:27

The Shop Around the Corner was the first Ernst Lubitsch film I saw and as soon as the characters started interacting with each other I instantly knew this was a guy who knew how to handle dialogue in what is referred to as the so-called ‘Lubitsch Touch’. With such levels of subtly, this is the kind of movie that needs to be watched multiple times and gets better every time you do so. Often the... read more

Cute Happy Movie

James Stewart as cute and adorable as always (perhaps a lil more grumpy) and some funny situations. The script skips the main characters conflict nearly altogether but I guess that´s the way the movies were made back then.

It´s a happy movie to watch.

"First Viewing Plot: Two employees at a gift shop can barely stand each other, without realizing that they are falling in love through the post as each other's anonymous pen pal. Uncynical and sincere, The Shop Around the Corner is a charming and engaging Hollywood classic based on a 1937 Hungarian play. And it certainly feels like a play since the majority of the movie takes place in a store, there are limited other locations, and the staging is very simplistic, but this is not to denigrate th"

"A classic I finally got to see. It is based on a play and it inspired "You've Got Mail". This movie is sweet and lovely yet still dull compared to "You've Got Mail". Stewart is his usual likable self but an average role for him."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- November 2018 (29 movies items)

" FilmStruck- 1hr. 39min. First Viewing Hampered a bit by it's age, The Shop Around the Corner is, nevertheless, a charming little romance, elevated by it's to leads and old Hollywood nostalgia. Admittedly, these modern eyes had more trouble with the film's contrivances than then-modern audiences would have, but it's hard to deny the film's spell; the story is too damn tantalizing to deny, and Stewart and Sullavan are exceptionally appealing in the lead roles.
